This bright co-op is perched on the 15th floor of a historic Lake Shore Drive building designed by notable Chicago architect Robert Seeley DeGolyer way back in 1926—although you probably wouldn’t guess its age based on the contemporary layout and updated fixtures.

The 1,600-square-foot unit boasts two bedrooms with renovated en suite bathrooms and a remodeled tile-lined kitchen with newer appliances and a breakfast bar island. Buyers will also find a living room with a fireplace as well as a dedicated dining area featuring an upholstered banquette in front of the windows.

Although the unit may not offer direct Lake Michigan views like some of its neighbors, the home gets light on three sides and provides its occupants with glimpses of the downtown skyline. Waveland Park, Belmont Harbor, the Chicago Lakefront Trail, and the Sydney R. Marovitz Golf Course are just a short walk away.

The updated Lake View residence is currently listed for $349,000. Co-op fees, which cover everything from upkeep of the building’s impressive skylit indoor pool to property taxes, run an extra $1,830 per month.
